What we have developed has blown our clients away. It has not only improved communication with architects, owners, and general construction project managers, but also our responsiveness to potential project issues.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) October 20, 2008
Leap Hospitality officially launched its own internet based project management tool to the hospitality industry. LeapLink was developed to help track contacts, specification, documents, procurement, warehousing, installation, and service for large scale FF&E/OS&E hospitality projects.
"We have had this in a beta test mode for over a year," said Leap President Patrick Phelan. "What we have developed has blown our clients away. It has not only improved communication with architects, owners, and general construction project managers, but also our responsiveness to potential project issues."
LeapLink provides query capabilities to run reports by project, project area, and equipment type. It also helps run project budget and current estimate reports.
"We can also develop an e-mail generated program where certain people are notified when a specific item is shipped, received, or installed," Phelan added.
The system is set up for clients to approve PO's real time without the need for paperwork.
"It can cut down several days of processing time and reduce staff needed to manage," said Phelan.
LeapLink provides all documentation for an entire project including item pictures, purchase orders, bills of lading, sales order acknowledgments, freight tracking, and invoicing. LeapLink also has a documentation portal for all pertinent drawings etc. to maintain revision control.
"It really becomes a one stop shop for total FF&E/OS&E project management," explained Phelan.
